Oh dear!

It's been one of those days, so far! First an unwelcome letter in the post and then a struggle to clear my mind for painting. I managed to get a heap of housework finished over the weekend, but I still find it hard to paint when things are so disorganised. Eventually, I forced myself out to the Studio where I finished making some colour charts ready for my new project. But you know how it is, one moment of procrastination can easily lead to another and I decided that I couldn't possibly paint when my board is so big and I've been wanting to cut it down for ages. Hubby is out for the day so I took the opportunity to get the board cut, realising quite quickly why he has banned me from using his tools in the the garage!

I was merrily cutting away and it must have taken quite a while before it dawned on me that the board was getting hard to cut. Can you guess what comes next? I'd been happily sawing through the craft table that I was resting on!!! OHMIGOSH! He is soooo going to kill me, as he recounts all the mishaps I've had in the past and all the reasons why I should stay away from sharp cutting instruments!

Even now, much later, I still can't get my head straight to go and paint. Is it any wonder? Am I the only daft person to have such disasters???

Oh double bugger! Never mind, he will be dining out on that anecdote for years to come! I don't *do* tools, especially not saws; they turn into immovable objects in my hands; I would not even have got as far as cutting the table!

haha! NO, you are NOT the only one. I could share my lengthy list with you but I must go to my craft room to see what trouble I can get myself into :)

Oh you poor thing!
I am terrible for diving right in with an idea, without stopping to think it through and prepare properly!

Oh thank you dear friends :) I've not admitted it yet, so I live to tell the tale! I'm hoping he'll see the funny side! I can :)

Renee said...

har har har you are so funny.

Love the story but not the bad mail.

Love Renee xoxo

Loved your tale! ( Hope your hubby sees the humorous side of it!)
Hmmm, sounds like something that would happen to me if I used tools of that nature. The safest thing for me is the paint brush!

Yarrow said...

Thanks Renee :) and it was horrible junk mail, so just annoying.

Nan, I think I should stick to safer objects too, but I do find it hard not to 'have a go!'
